On their seven-day tour of India and Bhutan, Duke and Duchess of Cambridge Prince William and Kate Middleton met Sachin Tendulkar at the Oval Maidan in Mumbai during a charity function. The royal couple played cricket with children from slums and later Sachin Tendulkar also joined in with them to bowl a few overs.

India’s batting legend Tendulkar spoke to Prince William about the recent World T20 where England finished runners-up and their love for tennis. “What a fantastic experience it was to meet the Duke and the Duchess of Cambridge. They’re a remarkable couple. They made us feel so comfortable and were very humble and simple. It was nice to know that he (Prince William) follows cricket. We discussed T20 Finals and tennis,” he told reporters present at the scene.

Later Sachin tweeted about his meeting with the Royal couple.

It wasn’t just one Mumbai batting pro alongside the royals with Dilip Vengsarkar amongst them too.
